Patricio, Georgia – Large jar with Rainbow and Mimbres Figures Designs
Georgia Patricio is a daughter of Lucy Juanico and a granddaughter of Joselita Ray and learned to make pottery from her mother. Each piece is coil built and patined with wild spinach and clay slips. This jar is painted with a complex pattern. The jar has a series of 24 Mimbres women encircling the shoulder. They are holding hands. Below is a checkerboard snow design over a detailed rising and setting sun pattern patined with fine-lines. Weaving above and below the sun “rays” is a rainbow painted with a rectangular pattern. The variety of geometric shapes on the graceful form gives the jar a very modernist appearance. It is signed on the bottom, “G. Patricio”.
